I have a Honda Accord Euro 2004 and the lights behind the console are not switching on with the headlights. There was a funny burnt plastic kind of smell for a couple of days prior to this occuring. Does anyone have a wiring guide or know how to fix this problem? I have checked all the fuses and all the console functions still works, it's just hard doing everything in the dark!

in any vehicle the wiring looms earth connections are very important
make sure all the earth connections are clean and tight
also check the brake light switch thats mounted by the pedal
check the contacts on both rear lights bulb holders
here is what you will need to do, before anything disengage the airbags system, this is a yellow wiring harness connectors in the console. do not damage these. second,if you still have the factory stereo, there is an anti-theft system, make sure you have the correct activation code needed for the stereo unit. after this is done, you will need to remove the bumper, several bolts up underneath and several up front, behind the turn signals. remove the side marker lights, the five retaining screws on the headlight housing remove the bulb connectors, re assemble with your new light housings. Good luck!
It's supposed to. The console is brighter during the day so that you can see it. At night, that same level of intensity is too bright. When you turn them on during the day, the car doesn't know whether it's day or night, so they get dimmer.
You have a switch on your console that locks the headlights up without giving them power. Use that switch to leave the up and there a a few screws that hold the plastic cover around the lights, just remove the cover and there a a couple more screws behold that cover that hold the headlight in place.. Should take about ten min to do both sides.. Any questions feel free to ask
You have to remove the console and radio pod. Then remove 2 screws that you can now get to behind the pod. Then pry out the dash light dimmer switch (the one you use to adjust dash light brightness) remove the screw behind it that holds in the gage cluster trim. Then there is another switch on the other side under the cluster (don't remember what it is) and there is another screw behind it. Have fun, LOL!
